This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in in an absolutely divine location. You simply cannot fault the location, a 20 minute lovely walk away from St Ives and the facilities in Carbis Bay hotel were also great. We were having Pimms in the hydropool overlooking the ocean. Simply beautiful. Also the staff were also exceptional and attended to our every need. Nothing was a problem. Everyone was smiling and we had an exceptional dinner on the first night. Yes there was building works going on but it didn't detract from the experience and anyone who is complaining about this is just looking for something to moan about. Rooms were comfortable and clean but I stayed in a superior garden room and cannot comment on the more luxury rooms. All in all a fantastic stay and couldn't fault it.

Hotel great, loved every minute, staff very helpful, food great,(crab sandwiches fabulous), so fresh, room small but very clean, view brilliant over the bay from the room, clear blue ocean and near white sand, the only problem at the moment is the major building works at the front of the hotel for new apartments, although this didn't spoil our holiday it may not be so for others.

Came here for one night as a little escape for me and my husband for our anniversary. From start to finish we were made to feel welcome and the staff couldn't do enough for us.
We relaxed by the pool in the Spa and enjoyed an amazing massage. Definitely recommend you do this as it was the best we've ever had. We both felt amazing afterwards.
We enjoyed dinner in the sands restaurant in the evening which we absolutely loved.
It was just what we both needed so thank you for an amazing stay and we will definitely be back.

The hotel has a lot to offer - wonderful beachside location, excellent service, first rate dining room, lounge, terrace etc. but before booking it might be advisable to do some added homework.
For us the bedroom didn't match the wider standard and was small/cramped, albeit sold as deluxe. I'm sure that will not be the case throughout the hotel, so if you like a spacious bedroom just check before hand what you are being offered.
The hotel also has ground floor function rooms that were twice given over to events during our stay, once for a wedding reception and once for a birthday party. Just bear in mind that you might not always have a peaceful time in the lounge/outside terrace, if there is music going on in the adjoining function room.
There is a car park, but it is not really large enough to cater for all guests, particularly if there is a function on.
So for us, well we did enjoy our stay, but it was tempered somewhat by the room, functions etc.

We appreciate your review, thank you and are pleased you enjoyed your visit. We have really a wide choice of accommodation, both within our hotel and our coastal properties and are always happy to look at alternatives. Due to our spectacular location we do host weddings and events but always provide the usual expected facilities for all our guests. We try to monitor any music carefully.
Regarding parking, we not only have our hotel carpark but plenty of alternative adjacent parking and a further facility in the near vicinity. We are always happy to assist with this.
We do hope that you will visit us again.
Best regards
